That's all we have from India on day 3 of the BWF World Championships. After a quiet start to their campaign, their star shuttlers stood up under pressure to register four wins today.
The only loss India suffered on the day was in the mixed doubles section where the world number 104 Saurabh Sharma-Anoushka Parikh went down to the World Number 11 from Malaysia. While PV Sindhu had an easy road to R16, Lakshya Sen, Satwik-Chirag and Kidambi Srikanth were forced to play out of their skins to reach the pre-quarters.
Thank you for joining in. We will be back tomorrow with another day of thrilling badminton action!
